Having knitted for a considerable time yesterday I did feel when I went to bed last night that that was the reason why I had a crick in my neck. I think the weight of the blanket on circular needles while I knitted the edging was a contributing factor to my pain and not the fact that I had watched at least 3 repeat episodes of Midsummer Murders, one after the other.

No knitting so far today as Charlotte had a snow day, therefore no school. While their mum went off to work I had both grandchildren round to play. Here are my little entrepid explorers in the garden searching for the ideal spot for the snowman.

We weren't outside too long, far to cold. We quickly made something resembling a snowman, pushed a carrot into the top for its nose, [now one carrot less in the casserole!] and headed back indoors.

Jessica slept and Charlotte made her first ever pom pom. She was very impressed as was I, what an excellent way to use up any Debbie Bliss wool leftovers. Apparently now that they've both gone home ,I have been told that the very same pom pom will be adorning their Christmas tree.
Later this evening after the one carrot casserole, I'm going to do some more knitting!!!!!


  1. Where's the picture of the snowman? Bet the Christmas tree will look lovely.....x

  2. You are so lucky having a husband that leaves the home to go to work. No one to tell you off for watching all that TV. Love the pom pom!
